    This is a 100% original metal '24 T that was destined to be chopped up for another project. You can't believe the pressure to chop and channel it. I thought I would build it to sell buy my wife said that it looked like a Toy T and said to build anything I needed to store and keep it.

    All work, body, paint, glass, upholstery, engine (276) done by yours truly. Runs a 200-4r trans. and 9" rear.

    All window and door regulators are the original '24 as well as all of the garnish moldings.

    Damn! That's awesome! I started a thread awhile back called the "Full Fendered "T" thread...Official maybe?" I'd love it if you posted it there!

    On a side note, Port Townsend is one of my favorite places on this planet! I worked there a several weeks out of each summer throughout the 2000s, and always stayed at the Water Street Hotel on the main drag. My '48 Plymouth was parked out on the street in front and looking out at it was like going back in time. Love that town!
     
  8. Damn, that's nice!!!

    Congratulations, you've done an excellent job on that. There's a lot more work in building a fully fendered car which I guess is why most folks leave them off as it speeds up the build.

    Wow. Really nice. To be able to say you did it all yourself must be a good feeling...especially something that beautiful. I love a chopped, fenderless and sometimes channeled hot rod, and I understand what you're saying about the pressure to do that...but sometimes it's a treat to see one with all it's clothes on. I agree with InstantT...the paint is just plain tastT. Like you could eat it. Please tell us the color. I'd say brown, but almost looks like cordovan. There are lots of different shades of brown. More pics of the interior please...from the little I can see, it looks like you did a fantastic job there too. Engine looks awesome. Man...everthing. Not much I'd change. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, thinkin' the same thing. One of the only things I'd do different.

    Gorgeous car, now build a matching trailer (for luggage, not for the car) and drive it lots. I can only see regret if you ever sell it.

    That's the best looking tall T I've probably ever seen. Add me to the list of people that want to know the color.
